Whoever filed for the initial support order would be the one who has to contact the child support office or file for arears in court.

I would think that wasn't you considering you are the child.

Find an attorney to help you with this. If your Dad never paid child support and you are now 19 years old, it might be too late to get it. The attorney will know all the in's and out's of the child support system. If you had pursued child support, before you turned 18 years old, the system would favor you more. Check it out and see what can be done.

In most states and if I'm not mistaking all states do not have statutes of limitation on getting backed child support. Contact the local child support center/ court and they can provide you more information on the necessary steps that's needed to get started. I did it for myself when I was almost 19 but my father quit his job in order to avoid making payment. I wish you the best of luck.
